Bloody Grind

As I slowly collect the last ten items for my Bigger Bag achievement, I’ve started working on something quite different. The Censer of Eternal Agony was sitting in my bag for months. I bought it solely for purchasing the Vengeful Porcupette but I wasn’t too keen on farming 100x Bloody Coins so there it sat, taking up one precious bag spot.

One night, I was looking though my achievements when I came across the Emissary of Ordos for an easy 10pts. All I had to do was use the censer. Geez, if only I knew that earlier. So I parked myself in one of our camp tents not really knowing what to expect. Once I had the achievement, I tried clicking off the buff which didn’t work. Maybe I could use our flight master to knock off the buff… nope. He was now neutral and would have attacked if I had clicked him. Turns out I had to kill myself so I aggroed the nearest crab.

The next achievement required 10x Bloody Coins so I asked Coolidge for help. He agreed to being killed once per day over the next ten days.

Candlekeeper

Here’s the series of achievements for anyone wondering. I doubt I’ll be getting any further but I guess you never know.

Name Achievement
Emissary of Ordos Use the Censer of Eternal Agony obtained from Speaker Gulan on the Timeless Isle.
Candlekeeper Obtain 10 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.
Oathguard Obtain 100 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.
Kilnmaster Obtain 1000 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.
Fire-Watcher Obtain 2000 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher. Grants the Fire-Watcher title.

According to GuildOx only 0.062% have the Fire-Watcher achievement, a slight improvement to Going to Need a Bigger Bag at 0.045% but you know what’s really annoying? Spending months on the Isle only to find the person you’re grouped with gets the item – TWICE while you’re still waiting for one! Seriously, times like this I wish you could trade it when the kill counts for both of you.

Come on RNG!

  1. It’s tough! I just got 1k achievement yesterday, and am on 1356 now. It makes people so angry though., I can’t wait until it is over!

    Anytime you want to run around on a PvP server, let me know! You’d be surprised how many squishies are around!

    • I can imagine people getting angry but I’ll keep that in mind, thx :)

  2. Grats! Any achievement that mentions PvP I just ignore which is why half the holiday ones I haven’t done. That’s nice of Cool to take the fall for you for ten days!

    • One kill per day isn’t bad at all for the person dying. I know because he killed me a few times too afterwards :)

  3. Oh, god, Bloody Coins. There are a mount and pet from them, too. The pet you can just buy off the AH, the mount not so much…

    I’ve been slooooooowly farming them — I think I have around 65 or so. It’s slow going, because I don’t like pissing people off (so flagging and standing on rares hoping somebody will mistarget is out) and I kind of suck at PVP (so getting ported to a PVP realm wouldn’t do me that much good).

    So since I have two accounts, I’ve been parking my main and my hunter alt on one of the pillars that are reachable only by albatross, popping the censer, flagging the alt for PVP and just… killing her once every 10 minutes. If you’re grouped, mass ress will work to get the murder victim back up, normal ress however will not.

    I need to get back to it, haven’t done it at all this last week. Assuming I sit there for 10 hours a day killing my alt every 10 minutes on the dot, it’s “only” 33 days and change for the 2k coin achievement. Ugh.

    • Yep, that’s what I ended up doing for the pet. I’ve seen quite a few people standing on the rares but I haven’t been flagged yet.

      Duel-boxing is a great way to do it though if you’re on a PVE server. Cool let me kill him 4 times on Sunday and we did notice someone targeting me as I waited for his debuff to lapse.

      Best of luck with the rest of your farming.

  4. Congratulations! Being on a PvP server, there is no shortage of bloodshed occurring at all hours of the day. Though, it’s tempting for me to try killing my own characters to get the mount, eventually. I guess on your PvE server, you have pretty much all the time in the world to get yours. :)

    I just can’t seem to survive long enough on any of my warriors to collect the coins. My sister, Quidamtyra @ Ner’zhul, though… she’s a beast, and just finished getting her 2000 coin achievement. I’ll tell you, they were glad to see her get that and finally leave them all alone. :p

    • Oh wow, congrats to your sister and I can understand relief on both sides. I’m in no rush believe me although it would be nice to get some easy kills at times. Camping rares gets very tiresome.
